Anybody that has been paying attention to the news has been seeing the lack of readiness for our military. It is with all branches, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. They blame it all on lack of money.
The news articles that have drawn the most attention is the Air Force who some air fighter squadrons are only 43% combat readiness. They are cannibalizing museum air craft for spare parts as is the Marine fighter squadrons, all because of no money, no parts.
What is interesting is Air Force one appears to be very well maintained and flies all together too much. How can a responsible president frequently (as well as the elite family) spends millions of dollars for fancy vacations while our servicemen and women are in danger. It would appear that it would be prudent to cut the White House budget dramatically and put the money into spare parts so our KIDS (military) have a fighting chance.
The more and more we look at this presidency the more and more we can see that this is a social experiment that went wrong.
